What if you and your peers fasted comparison? What if your family fasted unforgiveness? What if your church fasted spectatorship? What if your generation fasted escapism?
Such heart fasts could trigger a spiritual revolution.
This is the pursuit of 40 Days of Decrease: A Different Kind of Fast. A Different Kind of Hunger.
We ache to honor Jesus’ resurrection meaningfully. Yet apart from Easter, this cornerstone of our faith is considered with something far less than awe. Enduring awe is rarely the fruit a morning’s celebration. Enduring awe is the fruit of daily participation with Jesus, our resurrected Love. Each day offers a meaningful consideration of Jesus' journey and then issues a challenging daily heart fast.
In a self-indulgent age such as ours, any fasting is to be commended. But instead of fasting carbs, social media, chocolate, and designer coffee, 40 Days will call your community to fast apathy, injustice, resentment, hypocrisy, and more for the love of God.
Though brief in length, each day offers seven components:
1. A short message from the gospels. 5. An optional sidebar on the history of Lenten observance
2. A substantial question for reflection. 6. A suggested reading from John 12 to John 21
3. A daily heart fast. 7. Space for journaling.
4. A rich inspiring quote.
